I feel nothing but the pain but I hope for better days I feel scars of my afflictions to the point of my distain Confusion came, chaos reigned Some have gone before me and live to tell the story But still nobody knows directions to the road of recovery I know it won’t be easy and even if it kills me I will spend my life searching for the road to recovery I am woken by your voice in the silence of the night And if I stare at my reflection I can see you in my eyes Dejection came, darkness reigns Some have gone before me and live to tell the story But still nobody knows directions to the road of recovery I know it won’t be easy and even if it kills me I will spend my life searching for the road to recovery Many others in the past Have set off to not come back I will search these lonely streets If there earth beneath my feet like a traveller I will roam, roam I feel nothing but the pain Some have gone before me and live to tell the story But still nobody knows directions to the road of recovery I know it won’t be easy and even if it kills me I will spend my life searching for the road to recovery I will spend my life searching for the road to recovery I will spend my life searching for the road to recovery

Routine wake in the night, feels like I just closed my eyes Staring out the numerals gaze Only to wake in the morning to feel I’ve seen better days I can’t count the times I have woken up from you But somehow I’ll miss you when you’ve gone One look back a mosaic of a broken heart One step forward every ending has a brand new start You were a burden for so long But somehow I know I’m going to miss you when you’ve gone Wake to rise to the day, feels like a downward decline There’s got to be a better way Only to make it to evening and know I’ve seen better days I can’t count the times I have woken up from you But somehow I’ll miss you when you’ve gone One look back a mosaic of a broken heart One step forward every ending has a brand new start You were a burden for so long But somehow I know I’m going to miss you when you’ve gone One step forward every ending has a brand new start One look back a mosaic of a broken heart One step forward every ending has a brand new start Lifting the weight you laid on me Throwing the chains into the sea You were a burden for so long But somehow I know I’m going to miss you when you’ve gone

You feel the anxiety attack You’re in a place you wish you could turn back Emotions always cloud reality Fear never made anybody free Over before it began Over before it began I hear an eerie phantom heartbeat Can we get back to the place we were before? How can we see with our eyes so sore? We dodge the pain but invest in more Can we get back to the place we were before? How can we hear with the constant noise? There’s no beauty in a life destroyed Over before it began You and I agree to disagree On human rights and criminology Emotions always cloud reality The truth is clear but you refuse to see Over before it began Over before it began Over before it began Over before it began I hear an eerie phantom heartbeat Can we get back to the place we were before? How can we see with our eyes so sore? We dodge the pain but invest in more Can we get back to the place we were before? How can we hear with the constant noise? There’s no beauty in a life destroyed Over before it began Can we get back to the place we were before? We dodge the pain but invest in more Can we get back to the place we were before? There’s no beauty in a life destroyed (Can we get back to the place we were before?) Over before it began (Can we get back to the place we were before?) We dodge the pain but invest in more (Can we get back to the place we were before?) Can we get back to the place we were before? There’s no beauty in a life destroyed Over before it began (Can we get back to the place we were before?) Over before it began (Can we get back to the place we were before?) Over before it began (Can we get back to the place we were before?) Over before it began (Can we get back to the place we were before?)

Crazy 03:31
I told you once but it don’t seem to mean a thing I told you twice but you’re not listening This is me and this is how I feel You choose not to hear and it’s far from ideal Take, take a look around what you gave has only brought me down I’ve drawn clarity You have spelt it out for me Take, take, take her away, get her out of my face I said I’d give, give, give her a chance if she would give me space and I must be crazy, crazy, cause that girl is crazy And crazy is a nice word for her If you spoke less we could hear the birds singing in the trees We’ve all have grief you don’t own the monopoly Consequence is the price of your personality You’ll reap loneliness when you sow misery Take, take a look around what you gave has only brought us down Selfish, sinister Carnage is your signature Take, take, take her away, get her out of my face I said I’d give, give, give her a chance if she would give me space and I must be crazy, crazy, cause that girl is crazy And crazy is a nice word for her Crazy is a nice word for her Crazy is a nice word for her Crazy is a nice word for her Take, take, a photograph, print it out and add it to your wall of fatality Borderline’s your personality Take, take, take her away, get her out of my face I said I’d give, give, give her a chance if she would give me space and I must be crazy, crazy, cause that girl is crazy And crazy is a nice word for her Crazy is a nice word for her Crazy is a nice word for her Crazy is a nice word for her

You got people in your life who don’t reply to your emails Your own flesh and blood holding out with their details Have you ever stopped to the connect the dots? When your messages don’t get replies, do you wonder why? You’re incapable taking hints Reflecting on actions and making an inference Peace of mind is something you will never find There’s always someone who you’ve only just met saying goodbye The truth is something upstairs got knocked loose I’d tell you to learn from mistakes but it’s no use There’s a world of pain that you’ve made and you’ve streamlined And nothing I say, no matter how fast, will change your mind I could be wrong but it’s not very likely Your doctor even tried to break it to you politely You told me you hate the word But truth is always going to hurt I haven’t seen you lately which is good cause you are text-book crazy

Demons 04:15
I locked the doors of my own home I went to bed and my temperature ran cold The chemicals, like sedatives, so unrelenting Just like the Moon, a cyclic shift My heart will race and my mind begins to drift And I feel that way that I felt sometimes in darker days When I’m in that place and the darkness falls Can I count on you when the demons call? And so begins the game of wait The light and dark in time will separate The medicines and miracles were all a waste When I’m in that place and the darkness falls Can I count on you when the demons call? Now is the time, Today is the day Don’t let it hold you down another hour, Escape Now is the time, Today is the day When I’m in that place that the darkness falls Can I count on you when the demons call? When I freeze with fear and my hope is dry Will you come to me? Will you hear my cry if I call your name? Will you hear your name when the darkness falls? I am not alone when the demons call

Learning to learn from the past every day Trying to try to be brave and not run away Finding the strength to stay strong Fearing the fears that I had will soon reappear Hoping the hope that I have won’t disappear I understand I don’t understand How can a heart that’s so sore now love you more? Seeing what I see Through the tears I tear Looking back making light of the darkness Hearing what I hear Feeling what I feel Looking forward down a course full of coarseness I have found pieces of peace Remembering memories I can’t afford to move forward Asking a question I can’t understand How can a heart that’s so sore now love you more? Grieving the loss that I lost every day Sick of the sickness of grief take it away Longing too long for escape Finding the truth to be true and holding it near Putting my faith in my faith and not what I fear I understand I don’t understand How can a heart that’s so sore now love you more? Seeing what I see Through the tears I tear Looking back making light of the darkness Hearing what I hear Feeling what I feel Looking forward down a course full of coarseness I have found pieces of peace Remembering memories I can’t afford to move forward Asking a question I can’t understand How can a heart that’s so sore now love you more? All can see is I’m lost at sea Hard times are so hard to believe I have found pieces of peace Remembering memories I can’t afford to move forward Asking a question I can’t understand How can a heart that’s so sore now love you more? How can a heart that’s so sore now love you more?

Looking back I see the burden I can feel the weight I never really thought about it ‘til it was over and it was too late Can you hear me speaking, looking towards the stars? Can you hear me? Hear my words like a gift and try to keep holding on to them Hear my words like a gift and try to keep holding on to them From the moment I was hopeful a mutiny was waged I chose to never speak about it cause I was broken and you were too late Do you hear me speaking, looking towards the stars? Do you hear me? Hear my words like a gift and try to keep holding on to them Hear my words like a gift and try to keep holding on to them Looking back I can see Looking back I can see Looking back I can see Looking back I can see You can hear me
